About

Desert Foothills Theater is proud to produce this world-premiere Arizona Centennial event. The Devil’s Frying Pan, as some referred to Arizona, was a dry, desolate, dangerous place. Just getting here was fraught with danger and staying—that’s when it got really interesting.

In the Devil’s Frying Pan introduces you to those hearty folk brave enough to settle the land we now call Arizona. Through oral histories and other first- person narratives, the pivotal moments that culminated in Arizona achieving statehood are shared from the perspectives of those who helped make it happen. Experience history as as you immerse yourself in the stories, poetry, music and imagery of that time! Discover the origins of the indomitable Arizona spirit that continues today.

This project has already been recognized as both an Official Arizona Centennial Project and an Arizona Centennial Legacy Project.  We are pleased to be partnering with the Arizona Historical Society to tour the project to Tucson and Flagstaff and to provide school matinees. The World Premiere will be in Cave Creek, Arizona from February 2 - 19, 2012.  It was written by Lori Vander Maten and is being directed by Mark Clemente.

Desert Foothills Theater is an award-winning theater that has been producing work in the far north valley of metropolitan Phoenix for over 36 years.
